India call up Kuldeep Yadav for forthcoming Tests against England

India call up Kuldeep Yadav for forthcoming Tests against England

After the T20I and the ODI series, India's ultimate test begins in the England tour with the Test series.

The Indian selectors met in Leeds to pick the squad for the first three Tests of the upcoming 5-match Test series against England.

Sharma's omission from the squad will not have much impact on the balance of the team though as there is ample batting cover for India in the middle order with Rahane, Pujara and Vijay all seasoned campaigners in the Test format.

Kohli would have been aware of the injury concerns to both his limited-overs strike bowlers but put up a courageous face on Tuesday, when asked how ready India were for the Test series. "Our squad is pretty settled". It is going to be very challenging, but something that we are looking forward to as a side. We want to play tough cricket, which I'm sure the English team would provide us. ESPNcricinfo understands Bhuvneshwar will undergo intense rehabilitation for about four weeks at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru before the selectors make an assessment on his fitness for the final two Tests.

Kolo Toure, Thierry Henry, Sol Campbell, Nicolas Anelka", he answered, according to the Daily Mirror . The ones I am most proud of are the ones that cost little but turned out to be top class.

Furthermore, Shardul Thakur has also received his call-up.

Rishabh Pant has been added to the Test squad as a backup gloveman.

Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan and Lokesh Rahul were the three opening batsmen in the squad, though the latter came in at No. 3 against Afghanistan, pushing Cheteshwar Pujara down a spot in the absence of a rested Kohli. Without Bhuvi India's pace attack is precariously balanced on the shoulders of Yadav, Sharma and Shami who returns to the squad after being left out of the one-off test against Afghanistan due to fitness issues. That shows why he is only the third spinner, behind R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. Rishabh Pant is another notable inclusion earning his maiden test call up after Wriddhiman Saha failed to recover from a thumb injury he picked during the IPL. He was unbeaten on 37 in the ongoing match against England Lions at the time of the announcement of the squad. However, Pant failed to grab his opportunities on the A tour of South Africa a year ago.
